40% of california prisoners serving life sentences were sentenced for -- african-american despite california being 6.6 african-american. three strikes stands as a stark reminder of the unintended democracy. the stakes are just as high in the stakes around the country as history is poised to be made. voters have the chance to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana for use by adults. voters in maryland could be the first to endorse gay marriage by popular vote. voters seem poised to pass a proposition that would reform that same three strikes law. using direct democracy. joining us is sue, the director of policy and strategic politics at the state's network. adam, the founder and president of freedom to marry and bob herbert back at the table. sue, i want to start with you. there was an iconic moment in 2004, particularly with the anti-gay marriage ballot initiatives. it seemed like the right seized this particular tactic as their own and were using it. the other thing that strikes me is this initiatives passed in a bunch of states and taxpayer bill of rights passed in colorado. surve
